Justin Bieber's 'Sorry' Goes Motown in Postmodern Jukebox Cover
Broadway star Shoshana Bean takes on the Biebs in a new PMJ arrangement.
The jazzy musicians are joined by guest vocalist Shoshana Bean for a 1960s Motown arrangement of The Biebs' No. 1 Hot 100 hit. Their cover is the lead track on the band's new record, PMJ and Chill, just released on Feb. 18.
"Although taking a Justin Bieber song back to the ’60s may seem like a stretch, the lyrics to 'Sorry' aren’t far from those of some classic Motown tunes, which made this arrangement come together quite organically," PMJ leader Scott Bradlee shared on the group's website. "Motown Records was responsible for some of the most enduring grooves of the 20th century, and you might just recognize a few nods to them in this video."
In the clip, Bean is joined by vocalists Luke Edgemon and Mario Jose.
PMJ and Chill also features collaborations with American Idol alumni Rayvon Owen and Nicole Atkins.
Next up for PMJ: Tour dates overseas kicking off at the Dubai Jazz Festival on Feb. 24.
